    He hasn't gone up against Shaq.

    Man he looks legit good. Mobile, lots of length.

    Good demeanor and feel for the game.

    I hate this kind of thinking. Nowitzki would of never been an all-star if it were for this line of thinking. Yoa would still be playing if we didn't force him to gain so much weight and turn him into a low post only player. This guy could end up being the next Kevin garnet before he'll ever be the next yoa.

    I can't think of a better comparison than a 7'1 Sam Dekker.

    Umm so Garnet in his prime was chucking up 3's at every opportunity? No. I too hope Zhou turns into a Garnet clone. Means he's a paint monster.

    Dirk was special. He was never an inside scoring threat and flourished in the mid game.

    Not sure why you want a 7 footer jacking up bad outside shots. He won't be able to stay in front of quicker 4's plus he naturally WANTS to play inside, why reinvent the wheel?

    Less skilled though. That is perfectly understandable, since Yao was the 1st round pick.

    This kid is far more talented than Dekker. He is raw, and physically weak. He is a poor man's Porzingis, which isn't as bad as it sounds. A lot of hard work in the D-League should help him out.

    not going to bash him for not shooting well in the past couple of games. The rockets want him to extend his range and he's gonna have to adjust to that and adjust to the longer 3 point line in the NBA. He'll get his shooting up but I do think he would be a bit more useful than just camping at the 3 point line. Need him to mix it up in the paint or mid range for a little. Too tall to not take advantage of an inside game.

    Do you know our coach is Mike D'Antoni not Jeff Van Gundy?

    I liked what I saw but was a little scared about a 7fter getting blocked on a fade away in summer league....it got called a foul, but what's the point of being a 7ft shooter if your getting stuffed on fade aways? Seems like he works the glass well although in summer league lots of those guys are not doing a good job of blocking out so likely a bit of false positive there.

    3>2

    But 2>0

    I think players , especially young guys , should start off by playing the game they are comfortable with. If Qi is confident shooting 17 footers , let him . Then , work his range out over the course of time .

    Confidence plays , if he takes all of these 3's and doesn't see many go in ... And then takes a two (and because he hasn't been taking that shot , is not in a groove and misses) that's the worst case outcome.

    it's really about fit. can his game or potential translate into what the rockets are wanting him to be as a contributor? if it does, good find but if it doesn't, you move on and the journey continues for that player. that goes for the endless amount of young prospects trying to find a team year after year

    Agreed .

    But at the same time you always want to create value .

    I just favor a player based approach .

    We are developing Qi to be a player that best fits in our system vs developing him to be the best player aligned with his natural game and skills. Sometimes those objectives clash sometimes they don't.

    I think that by prioritizing system and fit , you can have players slip through the cracks .

    1) because of, if developed a different way they would have become good enough to play despite the lack of perfect fit

    2) also , if we show Zhou the midrange hitting good defensively 7 footer ... That's more valuable an asset than Zhou the 7 footer who doesn't play because he can't hit 3's. ..... Sure in this case another team can take a chance but , they will have to restructure his development (cost) and won't have seen any production on court.

    it'll be interesting the steps they take with him. The SL is a small test to see where he is as far as competing against overall overseas talent. Then he'll move on to the G-League. We obviously see some of the potential being displayed. Reminds me of another capella project.
